The room and bathroom were in great shape with a view out back to the rail station. Best towels on a long trip staying in many fine places. The room was quiet--heard no train nor cars on the road in front. Breakfast was excellent. The hosts were as congenial as could be and quite helpful. One couldn't ask for better.... More

Stayed for 1 night during a tour around southern Ireland. Arrived by rail at Cork Kent station (in heavy rain ;-) so it was a very handy short walk to the Kent House B&B.

First of all, this place is really hard to find. The N4 through Cork forces you left before the b&b so you have to go PAST the train station and turn right and back track if coming from the East. Also, it appears to be in a rougher area, not to worry! The b&b is a short 10-15 minute walk... More

When driving up to this place we were very scared. It is located on a busy narrow street and the hotel only offers on street parking. The neighborhood was not the best and the place looked run down. Once inside though we were greater by a friendly man and showed our rooms. Although not the best room it was adequate.... More

HI, Firstly we must apologise that the exterior of the house scared you. It's not a complaint we have had before, but we will look into it. We are sorry but it seems you just didn't get what we are about. We are a 3*star B&B integrated into a Victorian Townhouse. We are not a 5star hotel as were your... More

The lovely owners of kent house welcomed me in after a long night and day in Cork City. Beautiful bedroom and a brilliant breakfast. I left refreshed and full and ready for more travels. I would definitely visit again when I'm next in cork. It's only a minute walk from the train station too so perfect for tired feet!
